A New Partnership For Capital City Farm

August 3, 2021

TRENTON, NJ (MERCER)–A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held yesterday, August 2, 2021, to officially launch the new partnership between the City of Trenton and the Mercer County Park Commission to operate Capital City Farm in Trenton’s North Ward. The property at 301 North Clinton Ave. was acquired in 2014 by the City of Trenton, using open space funding provided by Mercer County, and soon thereafter was cleaned up and improved for farming.

Today, under a recently executed agreement whereby the City will maintain ownership of the property and the Park Commission will staff and manage the farm, Capital City Farm grows healthy food, much of which is donated to the adjacent Trenton Area Soup Kitchen; offers learning and employment opportunities to Trenton residents; and maintains an open and green landscape to the surrounding neighborhood.
